hard questions of mr. brennan. >> reporter: critics also point out that if the obama white house wants to build broad support for this program it would be in their interests to show more transparency as to the rules which govern targeted killings because targeting an american citizen for death without judicial due process is a real departure, even from what we saw under the bush administration. jenna: big story for us today, catherine. thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: right now high stakes negotiations underway in washington of the president obama sitting down with top business and union leaders to talk about immigration reform and a possible guest worker program. meantime down the street on capitol hill the house judiciary committee holding its own hearing on immigration. joining us now to talk about all this, a.b. stoddard, associate editor and columnist for "the hill." the president you point out missed an opportunity or a deadline really to put forward his budget. what's he doing instead? >> well, he's going to make remarks today on the sequestration, the cuts that were
